This place is not much on the eyes, but the fish tacos are excellent. Small, fast food-like restaurant, but fish tacos are first rate. Watch out for the wandering chickens.

We stopped in while in Oahu and weren't very impressed. Quite a few customers were complaining about wrong orders and about how long of a wait it was. The fish and shrimp tacos were pretty good, nothing special. The price was about average of Hawaii ( a bit high ) & we did have to wait about 45 min or... More

Expensive, but they are good. Fish tacos are just okay. Burritos and salads are also just okay. Sweet pork quesadillas are the best. Its $$$ for a little joint…but its addictive.

We found ourselves here twice during our short week stay near the area. The first time many of the group purchased the tacos. However, we learned that the burritos were the way to go for us. Same price; a ton more food. The fish was superb; Ahi both times we went. We also had members of our party have the... More

Good fish tacos - great sauce. Flour tortillas - needs a slaw over a romaine I would say. Sweet pork tacos are great as well. Homemade hot sauce is super hot and tasty. The rice and beans that come with the tacos were pretty bland. The quesadillas coming out looked great. Really friendly help.

My wife and I repeatedly found ourselves on the North Shore during our stay on Oahu. One day, we randomly stopped in at North Shore Tacos, who boasted the #1 fish tacos on the island. Let me start by saying that I'm not a fish person. But, when in Rome... Those fish tacos were wonderful. We actually ate lunch there... More

They've changed their name, but not the quality of their food. Fresh, tasty ingredients - including the tacos and the accompanying rice & beans. Tried 1 fish taco and 1 shrimp taco. Preferred the latter, but was glad to have tried each. One of the best meals I had on Oahu!
